Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Because cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is in close contact with diseased areas in neurological disorders, it is an important source of material in the search for molecular biomarkers. However, sample handling for CSF collected from patients in a clinical setting might not always be adequate for use in proteomics and metabolomics studies. METHODS: We left CSF for 0, 30, and 120 min at room temperature immediately after sample collection and centrifugation/removal of cells. After tryptic digestion at 2 laboratories by nanoLC Orbitrap-MS and chipLC QTOF-MS, CSF proteomes were analyzed. Metabolome analysis was performed at 3 laboratories by NMR, GC-MS, and LC-MS. Targeted analyses of cystatin C and albumin were performed by LC-MS/MS in the selected reaction monitoring mode. RESULTS: We did not find significant changes in the measured proteome and metabolome of CSF stored at room temperature after centrifugation, except for 2 peptides and 1 metabolite, 2,3,4-trihydrobutanoic acid, of 5780 identified peptides and 93 identified metabolites. A sensitive protein stability marker, cystatin C, was not affected. CONCLUSIONS: The measured proteome and metabolome of centrifuged, human CSF is stable at room temperature for up to 2 hours. We cannot exclude, however, that changes undetectable with our current methodology, such as denaturation or proteolysis, might occur due to sample handling conditions. The stability we observed gives laboratory personnel at the collection site sufficient time to aliquot samples before freezing and storage at -80 °C.
